Think positive?!

I had a full Sunday. My little family was reunited for a happy reason. We slept late night but I dreamed beautiful.  This morning somebody-up-there decided to bring me suddenly down to Earth like this:
1. My laptop broke down.
2. My washing machine broke down.
I stop here my list in order to.... think positive.

So, I have only one illustration today. But a cheery one (I hope!). Like a golden Autumn day.
One block I used already for a small project  I will show you when things will calm down here.

Have a beautiful week, my dears!

Coffee Break

This morning.
Under my coffee mug.

I found a message.

Have a beautiful day, my dears!

Late Summer Little Bag

Do you remember the last post?
Well, one piece of the painted fabrics became the new member of my Colibri bags family. I called it Late Summer.

Looking for something to match the painted fabrics, I discovered pieces of denim, cloth, corduroy and others, forgotten in the hidden nooks of the cabinet. When I saw them I was very happy because they were just right for the Autumn bags.
I was happy too working again after a long time, with combinations of fabrics having different compositions, thicknesses and textures. 
For this bag I chose a thin blue corduroy fabric because it seemed to me that the painted fabric needs it as a still but not quiet companion.

It turned out a cheerful and handy little bag, big enough to host the essential things and small enough to wear it as a chic accessory.

Have a beautiful day, my dears!

Between Summer and Autumn

I'm still making Colibri little bags. I'm trying to fit the shape with the fabric print.
Because I didn't have fabric suitable for making bags, I tried my hand on two pieces of white fabric.

I painted one thinking about summer:

I like how the puffy paint gives a 3D layout.

and the other one thinking about autumn:

Nothing spectacular, but now I have what I need in no time and without spending any money.

Back to work!

Have a beautiful day!

Colibri - another little bag

The second cross-body little bag is ready.
Colibri is a Hummingbird group. When I was thinking how I will name the new bag, the first thing that came into my head looking at it, was this tiny bird. 

In the previous post I showed you the first little bag.
I changed its shape and I quilted it following the fabric print, doodling on the go.

How fun it is to make a bag having only 7" x 8"! It can be done in a few hours.
I simple love this crazy printed fabric! I made out this little bags more for the sake of it.

The same bag, the other side.

I made it two compartments, one of them being closed with Velcro.

Let's see what will come up!

Have a beautiful day, my dears!

A Little Bag

I had an orphan block -"Three and Six" named by Judy Hopkins - and I didn't knew if I will continue to make a quilt or not.

In fact I liked this printed fabric I bought from a local shop and I made a little test to see how it combines with my Kona solids scraps.
And because my brain is still in the "bag period", I used it for a little bag.
It turned out a pouch with cross-body strap, like I wanted.



I think I will make a few more such little pouch-bags. The perfect projects for the active breaks.

Have a beautiful September, my dears!
